    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Hughes Systique full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    All the pros that this company had are gone. The management has changed everything. All the employee friendly policies have been replaced by the company with the ones which benefit the company itself. "FREE LUNCH" is the only PROS left.

    Cons

    -> No growth
    ->Inverted triangle structure where the managers and directors are much more than the actual engineers and senior engineers.
    -> Poor and selfish management

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain your old employees by showing them that you care. Right now the attitude of the management which comes across is "WE DONT CARE".

    I worked at Hughes Systique full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great learning environment overall, especially if mentored under the right type of person (this factor is critical especially if employed in its India office - most US-based Hughes Systique and Hughes Networks Systems employees - techies or managers - are truly world-class).

    Great working environment in some projects and groups - the good managers and leads are truly awesome!!!

    Cons

    Extremely top-heavy org structure - about 40% employees have a 'manager' tag, and about 20% of all employees have corner offices.

    Number of total employees has remained stagnant over the last 5 years or so - a BIG negative for an aspiring IT Services major.

    Business acumen of some (not all) of the senior management folks is questionable.

    House of Extremes - the bad managers can be pathetic at best, horrendous at worst. Sycophantic culture has permeated some parts of the company. Generally considered to be a retirement resort for all senior management types (most of whom have been peers from Hughes Software Systems/Flextronics Software Systems/Aricent). Your chances of vertical growth beyond Senior Principal Engineer/Engineer Manager are next to nil if you are not of the right pedigree (read: an Aricent/HNS/HSS/FSS alumnus).

    Advice to Management

    Spread your wings and look for opportunities outside your own comfort zone. And please get the yoke of sycophancy off your back - It ain't befitting your class.
